"I want to make our most exciting dreams come true"

Marcel Wanders is a product and interior designer who has earned international acclaim for his unique, decorative modern style. Named by Wallpaper* as one of the leading designers of the last 15 years, Marcel’s star first rose in 1996 with the design of the iconic Knotted Chair. In 2001 he co-founded design company Moooi and his design influence has since become ubiquitous, designing for global brands such as B&B Italia, Cappellini, Puma, Bisazza, Poliform, KLM-Royal Dutch Airlines, Flos, Magis, Google, Target, Baccarat and more recently Christofle, M.A.C Cosmetics and M & S.

With a sense of theatricality and a remarkable use of space and textures, Marcel’s interiors have equally garnered international acclaim. His projects include Kameha Grand hotel in Bonn, the Mondrian South Beach hotel in Miami, the Villa Moda Flagship store in Bahrain, and private residences in Amsterdam, Mallorca and Jakarta. Many of Marcel’s designs have been selected for the most important design collections and exhibitions in the world.

In his collaboration with YOO, Marcel brings to Wanders & YOO a unique decorative modern style, recalling the materials, techniques and values of traditional Dutch design and making them relevant in the twenty-first century.
